Learn Spanish in Lima for a taste of the real Latin America! The city is a fascinating fusion of modern capital city, colonial splendour and priceless ancient Inca ruins. Lima acts as an ideal base for exploring the rest of Peru. Take a trip to the unforgettable Inca city in the sky, Machu Picchu, or travel north to the Amazonian river basin, teeming with exotic wildlife.
In the south lie the incredible floating islands of Lake Titicaca and the amazing, and mysterious, Nazca lines. Back in Lima, browse colourful Indian markets, practice your Spanish with friendly locals in elegant plazas, or visit one of the city’s stunning beaches! Conditions in Lima are perfect for surfing and paragliding, or you can simply relax on the golden sands. In the evening, dine out in one of Lima’s truly outstanding restaurants and admire the dazzling cityscape.
Our school in Lima
The thriving, cosmopolitan district of Miraflores is the location for our Spanish language school in Lima, just a short walk away from fantastic beaches. In Miraflores you’ll find the spectacular Huaca Pucllana pyramid, built and abandoned long before either the Incas or the Spanish arrived here. In the modern school building are eight classrooms, a café and Wi-Fi Internet access. The patio area is the perfect place to unwind and get to know students from around the world!
Your Spanish course in Lima will have a maximum class size of just eight students, regardless of which course you take. This allows our school’s experienced, native teachers to give you very customised tuition, helping you to learn as quickly as possible! Every course is open to all levels, from beginner to advanced.
Courses in Lima
The Standard Course consists of 20 Spanish lessons each week, leaving you with plenty of free time to discover Lima and Peru! For a faster pace of learning, our Super-Intensive Course provides you with eight Private Lessons, as well as the 20 group lessons of the Standard Course. If you want complete control over lesson content, our school also offers a course of 20 Private Lessons per week.
Take advantage of the excellent surf in Lima with our school’s Spanish & Surfing course! The programme offers 20 Spanish lessons and five hours professional surfing classes each week, with all equipment included.
Learn Spanish in Lima and help the local community at the same time! Our school organises a Volunteer Work programme (often involving care work), lasting for just one or two months, or for anything up to a maximum duration of six months.
Take a Spanish course in Lima with us, and you could split your time between multiple Latina American locations. With our school’s ‘multi-stay’ programme, you could, for example, spend four weeks learning Spanish at our Lima school, then continue the same course at our school in stylish Buenos Aires, Argentina. Or you might select our school in Santiago de Chile, Chile’s exciting capital, as a second destination. ‘Multi-stay’ courses allow you to experience a variety of Latin America locations and hear Spanish spoken in different accents!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information on these courses.
A great way to experience the Peruvian culture and the friendliness of the Limeños is to stay with a host family. Enjoy breakfast and dinner with your family, and get plenty of Spanish practice! All families are carefully chosen by our school, ensuring that you are placed with the most compatible host family. Choose a single or a double room.
You might prefer to prepare your own meals, though. Live in one of our school’s shared apartments, and you’ll share a kitchen with other language students from the school. This is the perfect arrangement if socialising with other students is important to you. Have a private room or share a bedroom with a student of the same gender.
We want you to have an unforgettable time whilst you learn Spanish in Lima! So our school runs a packed activities programme for your free time. Join activities like trips into the rain forest, Peruvian cookery lessons, guided tours of Lima, horse-riding, cycling tours, trakking in the Lomas de Lucumo nature reserve and nights out in the city. Surfing weekends to Cerro Azul, Playa Waikiki, Punta Rocas and San Bartolo are also organised by the school.
